My biggest question is if the Death Star wave will be ANH themed, ROTJ themed, or a little of both?

ANH
Luke Skywalker (new, SA)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (new, SA)
Imperial Officer (new, SA)
Death Star Trooper (TAC, grey repaint)
Stormtrooper (VOTC, repack)
Wulf Yularen (TSC, repaint w/accurate pants)
Cassio Tagge (TSC, repack)
Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin (new, SA)

ROTJ
Emperor Palpatine (new, SA)
Sim Aloo (new)
Ars Dangor (new)
Sate Pestage (new)
Admiral Ackbar (new, SA)
General Madine (OTC, repack)
Nien Nunb (new, SA)
Grizz Frix (new, SA)

After the weekend I had, buying about 25 figures, I'm actually relieved to see that I'm totally skipping this wave.  There is nothing in there that interests me whatsoever.  Poncho clone would have been good with the SA clone helmet, but that evolutions helmet is just awful.

Episode 2

I'm really hoping for some definitive versions of main characters, as well as some background scene-fillers...

* SA Padme (arena)
* SA Obi-Wan
* SA Yoda (with softgoods)
* Cliegg Lars
* Owen Lars
* Beru Lars
* SA Zam Wessel
* Any characters from the Outlander club


Jabba's Palace/Tatooine

For Jabba's palace & Tattoine, I'm hoping for figures that have either never been made (and will enhance dioramas), or figures that definitely need an update (I'm looking at you, Ponda Baba). This kind of encompasses the Cantina and Jabba's palace, because you know they'll do both of them next year anyways...

* Tonnika Sisters (seriously, what's the deal with this?)
* Sgt Doallyn
* Ree Yees (I'm putting him down because I think he's is ******* cool, and a new version with more articulation would be sweet)
* Slave Leia (I'm not expecting an SA version, but we need one that can lay down, even if she's sculpted like that)
* Brainiac (he could even come with a small sliver of bar to place in between the curved sections...or Wuher's distiller)
* Ponda Baba (this guy needs a makeover in a major way)
* Dr Evazan (see above)
* Human palace guards (there's a bunch of them, and we need some)


Death Star

Not sure if this is ROTJ or ANH, so I'm doing both...

* SA Emperor Palpatine with throne (one of my biggest wants in the line right now)
* SA Grand Moff Tarkin
* SA Final Duel Luke (with flap down)
* SA Admiral Ackbar (with command chair)
* Stormtrooper (rerelease this guy from now until eternity)
* Death Star Trooper (I can always use more of this guy, but with a head swap)
* Imperial officer (black tunic)
* Imperial technician (with scanning box)
* Han in stormtrooper disguise
* Luke in stormtrooper disguise


Endor

* Lumat/Female with Wokling
* SA Endor rebel trooper
* SA AT-ST driver
* Imperial trooper (basically, a death star trooper with jumpsuit...they were on Endor. Jesse, can you back me up on this?)
* Nien Nunb
* Wedge Antilles
* R2-D2 (with all his panels sticking out after he's been shot)

I'm pretty sure Hasbro said 2009, IIRC.

* Han in stormtrooper disguise
* Luke in stormtrooper disguise



I think I read somewhere that they were going to re release them in the comic packs minus the Marvel paint scheme.  Wave 5 I believe.... correct if wrong.

Well, that's a relief. Wait...will we have to buy that craptastic Chewbacca mechanic figure?

Yeah LTS we will. The movie accurate Han/Luke stormies are being packed in the same sets. I'm hoping the R2 that comes with Luke is movie accurate, it's about the only way I'll re-purchase that set.

What about the Clone Wars figures? and where did you get Shaak Ti from? I thought Anakin knocked her off when he attacked the Jedi Temple?

Shaak Ti is going to be in Force Unleashed, so hopefully there will be a new figure of her from the game...
